International GWJ Day 2011 - This Saturday!

This Saturday, October 15th will be International GWJ Day! A special day where people all over the place get together, play games and have an awesome time. To help you find any events happening in your area (or post you own) oilypenguin has compiled a list of the gatherings that are happening so far. Note that these are not "official" events per se. It's all a wonderful, community grass-roots movement. If you're in any of these areas, be sure to let them know in their relevant threads that you'd like to attend!

As part of the event we'll be recording a live Conference Call podcast on Saturday evening (specific times soon) so even if you can't make it to an event, you can still be part of the day. We'll be drawing the donation drive prizes, taking questions from the chat room and generally mucking about. Be sure to tune in!

Finally, all proceeds from the IGWJD shirts go to Child's Play. Check those out here.

All ready for Saturday! Mountain View watch out!

Saturday's gonna be one jammed day for me. Going to visit a friend that's 2 hrs away with our 1 month old for a party celebrating his newborn and gonna try and make it back before the live show goes up. If it starts after 7 EST it should be doable.

I call for lots of Google hangouts for us unwashed Europeans, who cannot afford to fly over!

My first ever International GWJ Day. So excited!

The one in Curacao has a 100% attendance! So I will be here by myself, enjoying the live podcast

Too bad there isn't one happening in Minnesota, considerig there are quite a few Minnesota Goodjers and I'm too lazy to try and put something together....

It's like these two things might somehow be related.

Except everyone in Minnesota is too polite to say it out loud.

Nah, just too passive aggressive to say anything....

'Twas the night before
with goodjers all a flutter
Tomorrow we game!

I've failed utterly in providing a how-to/start kit for the event.

In other news: when is the podcast? Have we sorted out the technology situation yet?

Unfortunately, IGWJ day arrives and I am down with the flu. I wish you all a good time, and drink a few for me.
